Odd restriction on capacity - help !!!
« on: August 12, 2012, 05:25:15 PM »
I'm flying a route THR-MAN which is a range of 2380nm

I have scheduled an A300B4-200 on the route which, with the config of C16 Y234 that I have it in, gives it a range of 2610nm - plenty to operate that route.

On the THR-MAN sector, I have NO capacity restraints but on the return MAN-THR sector, it says that I can only cary a maximum capacity of 27 PAX - why? It just doesn't make any sense to me ....

Any help anyone ??

Cheers

Sounds like runway restrictions. Lands at MAN with empty tanks, so needs less runway. Takes off from MAN with full tanks, so needs to have less weight in PAX. Only problem is, MAN has a 3048m runway, and a300s all need about 2700m of runway.

Would put it in the bug report forum, see what sami says. Possibly the system thinks your plane needs much more runway than the plane info says, or the system thinks MAN has a shorter runway than the airport info says.

That's what I initially thought but the a/c I'm operating on the route needs a runway of 2740 for it's MTOW and MAN has got 3048 - so shouldn't be a problem ...

I'll certainly put it in the bug report - cheers.

That's weird because it was but it seems to have rectified itself !! 

Thanks
